The Township of Mudu

Mudu Township 10km west to suzhou is a famous historical and cultural town of Jiangsu Province . "Mudu", meaning "timbers blocking the rivers", comes from a story: During the Spring and Autumn Period,King Wu was building " Guanwa Palace " for his concubine Xishi. The timbers rafted here were so many that they blocked the rivers. With many Ming and Qing period gardens, Mudu is called "town of Gardens".
